i think, the best thing you could do about it is to just tell
immediately, if you encounter something, that troubles you. please do
not just ignore it. things can only be changed, if they are
labeled/specifed/named. i can understand, that you would rather stay a
way from such a thread, but by reacting to bad behaviour, the
consciousness of the community about such issues will grow. and i am
pretty sure, that the majority of the list would agree with you. once
this kind of sense is established, i think noone would like to use words
like 'gang bang' in his/her mails anymore.
